The PADI certified courses conducted by Ocean Junkies focus on providing students with a comfortable environment in which to pursue their goals of becoming responsible and certified professional divers. We understand how difficult it is to balance work and studies, which is why we provide all of our students with flexible study hours as well as course durations so that our students can make time for their courses around their working hours and not miss classes.
Self study can also be done so that students can familiarize themselves with the modules before they head to class and take part in the water sessions. We provide our students with their own set of PADI books and study materials as well as 24/7 online help.
Dive Master candidates get to experience the work first hand by going out on dives with our guests and gain valuable experience and log dives in order to complete their course.
Since we have contacts in Dive Centres across the country we also help our students to find employment and once you graduate from our centre you would always have a support system to help you throughout your career.
This is an introduction to scuba diving that beginners can take. It is not required in order to become certified as an open water diver, but if you would like to, the course serves as a way to familiarize yourself with the equipment and techniques before doing the open water course.

Dives are conducted both in the lagoon and out on a boat and the entire course takes about four to six hours to complete.

My daughter and I were in Hulhumale for a couple of days and she planned to do a dive. We found Ocean Junkies just next to our hotel and were delighted with them. Not only did Firas and his colleagues arrange for my daughter to fit in two dives in the short time we were there, but I also joined them for the boat ride and snorkelling. It was an amazing experience and very professionally organised. Thank you for making our short stay on the island one to remember and we hope to come again!!- Barbara S. ★★★★★
